I'm probably dating myself with this comment. It's going to be one of those "when I was your age..." type things that your grandparents constantly say to you. You know, "...when I was your age, they didn't have fancy cell phones. No, we had to find a phone booth! And they only cost a quarter!!!" ...Or something like that... But way back when, downloading (let's just say "stuff" in case..... [ read more ]

The web is a divided, strange and sometimes scary place. Hollywood is up to its old money making tricks (some would argue that American big cinema never got away from it) and betting that audiences at home and around the world won't really notice its laziness. Two major franchises, Spiderman and Superman, are up for yet another reboot. Superman, I can see how a reboot would make sense. Not..... [ read more ]

Like it or not, the 3D invasion is still comin'. Content is totally limited and gear can be prohibitively expensive, like with any tech that's "new" and "fresh" (which 3D, by far, isn't either). You've got 3D TV's a plenty and Fuji's got the still camera out already. No doubt, other folks will soon follow. Now, Panisonic's thrown out the first 3D camcorder. It looks pretty sweet, if not at..... [ read more ]

I'm not sure why this is such a big deal, as personally, beyond looking sexy and eye candy on-screen, I'm not sure what role Megan Fox really had with Transformers. I get that we male geeks need a little eye candy here and there to keep us interested, but really? Isn't that what all the robots were for? News recently broke that Megan Fox is out for.....

There was a time in Hollywood where Jean-Claude Van Damme was to be the next accented action hero, a-la Arnold. Some really bad script choices later, he's now a direct-to-DVD-lucky-to-make-it-on-TV movie star. I think Street Fighter should get the blame here. It's sad, but you sort of saw it coming with this flick. It's soooo bad. Seriously! Ryu and..... [ read more ]

Don't get me wrong. I'm all for video game-to-movie translations. Really! Some turn out pretty good, like the Resident Evil Series. Yes, predictable, but the action is pretty good and it's not a terrible popcorn flick. But others, start with a pure profit-making mindset. After all, if the game made a ton of money, then it just makes sense that the..... [ read more ]

Just in case you don't know, a movie based on World of Warcraft is coming soon to theaters. Slated to hit sometime in 2011 with none other than Spider-Man director, Sam Raimi at its helm. Just mention Sam Raimi and some super-hero, mystical world, fantasy adventure and most fan boys are pretty hopeful that the movie won't suck. Me? I'm not so sure, but..... [ read more ]

I have to admit, I enjoyed Corey Haim's schmaltzy movies as a kid. Okay, it wasn't that I could related to Haim's Lucas character, but more that I had a thing for Kerri Green (Maggie) from that movie. Still, that Lucas could make friends with her related to the outcast misfit in all of us teenagers growing up. Who knew, that being a misfit would become so hip in the years to..... [ read more ]
